This bug has been fixed in version 0.3.8.

Please always test with latest stable version (or devel version) before reporting bugs: many bugs are fixed in each release (and many new features are added as well).

Or you can read the ChangeLog file to check if the problem has been fixed.

But it's better (and highly recommended) to upgrade your version.

If a PRIVMSG is received with a target of "#channelname", things work properly; however if a message is sent just to channel ops or voiced e.g. "+#channelname" or "@#channelname" then the client makes the (common) mistake of treating it as a PM since the target didn't match any known channel.

Instead the message should be shown in-channel but possibly with some qualifier to indicate that not everyone received it. Also it would be nice to provide an easy way to reply in kind.
